Working with Large Number of Raster Files

Do you have a large number of raster files to work with? This latest sample shows how to seamlessly work with lots of raster data files. Instead of having to work with multiple layers you can just point to the directory to load all the files and seamlessly display all your raster files as one layer. This requires less coding allowing you to focus on all the other aspects of your mapping app.

Download this sample to start your evaluation and see the power of Map Suite’s extensible object model and architecture which allows you to easily customize to suit any mapping needs. Continue reading

Featured Data Format: CAD (*.dwg, *.dxf)

Map Suite is data agnostic allowing you to read almost any data format. For a complete list of supported formats go here. In case you have a format that is not supported you can extend Map Suite by building your own feature source. For details on building your own feature source review the “Integrating Custom Data Formats” webinar.

In a previous post we featured KML. Today, we’d like to discuss another very popular format – CAD (*.dwg, *.dxf) drawings. Continue reading

Client Stories: What LandPro says about Map Suite GIS Editor

Unlike ArcGIS, Map Suite GIS Editor is very intuitive and easy to use, whether you’re a first-time GIS mapping user or an advanced GIS analyst. It is very easy to work with the most common GIS data such as .SHP, .TAB, .GRD, .BAS, .GDB, .TGEO, .SID, and many more. You can create and edit various layer types (area, line, point, multipoint), create and populate attributes, specify common projections (Lat/Lon, Google Maps / Bing Maps / OpenStreetMaps, State Plane, UTM) as well as hundreds of EPSG, ESRI, and custom projections.

Updated: World Map Kit Data Extractor

Map Suite World Streets provides street level maps for the World and includes a utility to cut out only the part of the world you care about, allowing you to deploy a much smaller dataset. This utility was recently updated and includes a few new features:

  1. The new extractor now uses our OsmWorldMapKitLayer.dll in order to determine which tables to cut data from each ZoomLevel. This means if you only want to get data for ZoomLevels 1-10, it will only cut data for the tables that are being displayed between ZoomLevels 1-10, saving time and cutting out unnecessary data.
